    S.C.R.E.A.M....BLOODY MURDER....THEN RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! S.C.R.E.A.M. begins with creepy, threatening phone calls from a mysterious male voice to a young teen girl who stupidly flirts with him a bit UNTIL........ He says...."You never told me your name." "The girl says...."Why do you want to know my name?" "The man replies...."Because I want to know who I'm looking at."She FREAKS! She is surrounded by large glass windows and French doors; and well, all hell breaks loose from there with a shocking S.C.R.E.A.M....BLOODY MURDER....THEN RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

She is surrounded by large glass windows and French doors; and well, all hell breaks loose from there with a shocking string of deaths in small town USA by a ghost-masked stalker with a big knife! I did see the movie released in 1979, but did not remember the killer so reading the screenplay was definitely wicked fun! (BTW SCREAM 1&2 are now showing on STARZ) Dark. Lots of slashing, bloody violence, but with an often funny script.

    Still a brilliant, perfect screenplay, nearly a quarter-century later: excellent plotting, terrific pacing, sharp dialogue, and emotionally resonant characterization. Studied here, Kevin Williamson's screenwriting is masterfully economical and effective -- just suggestive enough to let a master like the late Wes Craven bring it to life. Great script, great movie -- it's only too bad everything Williamson wrote afterwards fell into the very genre-cliché traps he so cleverly and entertainingly sub Still a brilliant, perfect screenplay, nearly a quarter-century later: excellent plotting, terrific pacing, sharp dialogue, and emotionally resonant characterization.

    This book deserves way more than 5 stars! The movie also! Scream was the movie that absolutely terrified me when I was young. I couldn't go out for Halloween without seeing someone dressed as Ghostface and freaking out. I can remember one year I dressed up as Ghostface, looked at myself in the mirror and nearly started crying because I looked too scary. But, boy, things have changed now. Scream is my favourite movie (not just horror movie) of all time. It's smart, witty, suspenseful and it never This book deserves way more than 5 stars! The movie also! Scream was the movie that absolutely terrified me when I was young. I couldn't go out for Halloween without seeing someone dressed as Ghostface and freaking out. I can remember one year I dressed up as Ghostface, looked at myself in the mirror and nearly started crying because I looked too scary. But, boy, things have changed now. Scream is my favourite movie (not just horror movie) of all time. It's smart, witty, suspenseful and it never gets boring. It was interesting to be reading the script and thinking about those scenes as they are in the movie. Not only do I love the movie, it's cast (especially Neve Campbell) and the director, but I also love the writer, Kevin Williamson. His dialogue is so sharp and witty and you can tell he's really put some thought into his characters and what they're saying. He's written many other movies such as I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Faculty, both of which are popular 90's teenage slasher movies. TV fans will know him for writing hit TV shows like Dawson's Creek, The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. If there are any Scream fans out there that are reading this review, GET THIS BOOK NOW! It's a great thing to have and it's a lot of fun to read. :)

    Sure, Scream is self-aware that it's built on clichés but... it's built on clichés. So many characters are needlessly cruel or vapid or dumb or some combination. And the ghost-masked villain was too ludicrous to incite genuine fear. Sure, Scream is self-aware that it's built on clichés but... it's built on clichés.

    I read this once while at a bookstore. Kevin Williamson is one of the best modern movie writers of the modern day. With novel-like flair he sets up tension, characters, and events that anyone that is anyone would want to immerse themselves into in the ways of film. This was great though I did not get the chance to read all of it as that store has now gone kaput. But his writing as well as other influences have not been lost on me as well as I am sure millions of others.

    Scream is a fantastic thrill-ride that, somehow, pulls you in further than beautifully-written Wes Craven classic! The novel/screenplay is fast-paced and very well-written (thanks to Kevin Williamson). The novel/screenplay is very interesting with an exceptional foreword by the master himself Wes Craven. I reccomend this book to all because it is my favorite novel of all time.

    I've always wanted to read the screenplay while I watched the film. Finally my dream came true! It was fun to see how things differ from the screenplay and movie. Also, I was surprised that some scenes were reversed originally. But the biggest surprise and *SPOILER* is at the end of the screenplay when Randy asks Sid out to see a movie. Great companion to the film. 5 stars! I've always wanted to read the screenplay while I watched the film. Finally my dream came true!

    I absolutely adored reading this. Scream is my favorite horror movie and this gave me a chance to read altered/deleted scenes and gave insight to certain scenes that only a screenplay can do.
